The Easter Kiss
By Apollon Maykov (1821–1897)
 
Translation of John Pollen

SOON the sun-bright feast-day cometh,—
  I will claim my Easter kiss;
Others then will stand around us:
  Pray, my Dora, mark you this!
 
Just as if I never kissed you,        5
  Blushing red before the rest,
You must kiss with downcast eyelids,
  I will kiss with smile repressed.
